I used to have really brittle nails that would split and break super easily, but here’s a homemade top tip that helped my nails to grow strong and healthy in just two weeks. It takes about two minutes and will cost you little to nothing, yup nothing, and that’s because you’ve probably got the ingredients already in your kitchen.
What you’ll need:
- Olive Oil
- Cuticle Stick
Squeeze a little bit of juice out of the lemon – you’ll probably just need a quarter of the lemon. Mix it with a little bit of olive oil. Gently push back your cuticles with an orange stick (it’s easiest to do this after you’ve had a shower or soaking your fingers in warm water. Dry your hands before pushing back your cuticles). Apply the olive oil and lemon mixture on each cuticle. Massage in until fully absorbed. Do this twice a day for two weeks. In that time you should notice your nails growing stronger, harder and looking healthier. After two weeks you can start to apply the mixture once a day, just before bedtime, to maintain your healthy, split-free nails.
The oil moisturizes your cuticles so your nails won’t split or break. The lemon juice removes any stains or yellowing.
